Dipingere Soldatini in Scala 1:72

Uniformi mimetiche are a lot easier to paint in miniature than one would think. In 1:72 scale what we are looking for is not a minutely detailed copy of a particular pattern, but a convincing likeness of the same. It is important to use a good photo of the pattern for reference, in order to achieve the desired effect in miniature. There are plenty of picture references on the internet, e they can be located in Google, using the image search option. Simply enter the proper name of the pattern you are looking for, like US "tiger stripe" o Vietnam "tiger stripe", e click on "image search" to view the search results. Remember to share camouflage painting information con other members of your wargame group to ensure that patterns will match on the gaming table.

Camouflage Painting Guide

The editors of Military Miniatures Magazine paint soft soldatini plastici con top quality artist Acrylics which form a flexible e resiliant skin around the Polyethylene soldatini. Every layer of artist Acrylic paint will bond con the one underneath it to form a paint coat which will withstand the roughest handling during wargames.

Camouflage patterns typically have a prominent base colour which needs to be selected prudentamente to achieve the proper hue. This base colour should be agreed upon by all members of a wargame club, so that troops painted by different club members may be deployed together to form larger wargame formations. Undercoat the soldatini in the base colour, shade e drybrush as usual.

If the base colour looks right, add the appropriate secondary colours either in splotches, stripes, o spots. To paint camouflage splotches o tiger stripes con soft o feathered edges, dilute the paint to a watery consistency e wash the splotches onto the base colour prudentamente, using very little paint on a fine brush. The base colour will remain visible through the secondary splotch colour, giving the uniform a naturally blended e faded look. Camouflage stripes should be painted con several short brush strokes, to add some irregular feathering where brush strokes meet, thereby avoiding unrealistic ring patterns around the arms e legs.

The tiny camouflage spots of Flecktarn tedesco e schema desertico seicolore dell’Esercito degli Stati Uniti should be created con full strength paint to ensure that they do not blend con underlying pattern splotches.

Camouflage Painting Examples


Painting camouflage patterns is fun ed easy, particularly if a photo of the pattern is available for reference. The most helpful camouflage painting suggestion is to dilute the secondary camo colours ed apply them very sparingly to achieve a properly blended e faded effect.
